The Restoration of the MV Ross Revenge: 24th August 2008
The second visit of the month over the August Bank Holiday weekend in the UK continued with further work to the gunwhales on the starboard side. The starboard side of the superstructure just in front of the boat deck was tidied up and repainted as well. More work was also undertaken on the winch and the trawling wires which had lay on the deck in an untidy heap were cut into smaller pieces and stacked just in front of the exhaust stack. Work was also started on the ship's mast removing the trawler colour. Crispin Bardsley from Dumfries became the newest member of the restoration crew to join in the work. The radio station was broadcasting from the ship over the weekend and Top 15 VIP winner Martyn Wise joined the crew for a bit of work and the honour of broadcasting his own Top 15 in the studio with Cliff Osbourne.

Restoration Crew: Alan Beech, Lee Shuttlewood, Graham Coull, Pete Woods, Phil Meek, John Cronnolley, Tommy "Senior Anorak" Gerrard, Steve Dack, Rod Davis, Dave Noakes, Crispin Bardsley, Richard Kuttschreutter, Howard Copitch, Roland Beaney, Lawrence Scordellis and Martyn Wise
